(If you can't buy an AR15 citizen, build one for your own self defense. Remember the IRS is preparing and training with the AR15 so why shouldn't you citizen?)
(Americans are arming themselves more than ever, and for good reason. I do think the AR15 is an excellent home defense weapon. Every citizen should own an AR15 and have enough 223 and 556 ammo. Also every citizen should train with the AR15 on how to use it to defend yourself and your family!) Story Reports

Congressman questions IRS training with AR-15 rifles

Congressman questions IRS training with AR-15 rifles

As if the Internal Revenue Service didn’t have enough problems, yesterday Politico reported that a curious South Carolina congressman is wondering why IRS agents have been training with AR-15 rifles; an interesting question since the flap months ago over huge ammunition purchases by the federal government that were blamed for shortages across the map, including the Pacific Northwest.

Congress clamped down on the Department of Homeland Security’s ammunition buy but when Rep. Jeff Duncan, who represents South Carolina’s Third Congressional District, visited a federal law enforcement facility last month, he encountered the IRS agents training on the gun range with the rifles. These are the same firearms that gun prohibitionists refer to as “assault weapons,” which they claim only belong on a battlefield.

Duncan chairs the House Homeland Security oversight subcommittee, according to the Politico article. He understands that the IRS has an enforcement division, but he wonders why the IRS can’t rely on other law enforcement agencies for serious firepower if a situation calls for it.

All of this may end up in the hands of IRS Inspector General J. Russell George, who has already been quizzed by the House Oversight Committee about IRS spending abuses.

This is the same IRS that is currently under political scrutiny for what appear to be widespread efforts to target conservative organizations, at the same time the agency is in trouble for embarrassing spending on conferences and “training” videos featuring line dancing and “Star Trek” spoofs. One might wonder whether anyone working for that agency should be trusted with any kind of firearm.

According to Politico, the IRS issued a statement in response to Duncan’s curiosity:

“As law enforcement officials, IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agents are equipped similarly to other federal, state and local law enforcement organizations. Special Agents receive training on the appropriate and safe use of assigned weapons. IRS Criminal Investigation has internal controls and oversight in place to ensure all law enforcement tools, including weapons are used appropriately.”

Right, the same way that the IRS has been using taxpayer money appropriately; a situation that now has the agency under the microscope on Capitol Hill.

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Tex.) is reportedly having some fun with this story, announcing Thursday morning that his on-going AR-15 raffle, which began last month, offers some citizen the opportunity to have the same gun the IRS has.

“You don't need to be an IRS agent to get your own Bushmaster AR-15. I'm giving one away for FREE on July 4,” he declared via Twitter today, according to Politico.

Stockman’s raffle wraps up on Independence Day.
